Dry Run 2024

Sunday, July 14 – Wednesday, July 17

Georgia Southern University (Armstrong Campus), Savannah, GA

Program Overview

Dry Run is an annual workshop designed to provide practical experience for new admission
professionals who are currently employed by a college or university. The program provides
training in relevant basic skills and discussion of pertinent issues and situations encountered in
the admission profession. Participants will attend presentations, engage in case studies, work
within small-group settings, and participate in mock-situation settings. This is a residential
program and all participants are required to attend all sessions and activities and stay in on-
campus housing, regardless of whether they live locally or not.

Participants will be assisted by volunteer “faculty.” Dry Run faculty are seasoned college
counseling professionals from a variety of secondary and post-secondary institutions. Dry Run
faculty members consist of SACAC members who are leaders in our profession and have
displayed multiple years of experience in a variety of key subject areas that are relevant to
admissions and success in our field. During Dry Run, faculty will lead program sessions and
share their expertise and diverse experiences with our future colleagues.

In addition, participants will break out in small group mentoring sessions with faculty members.
These sessions allow for more in-depth discussion, question and answer, and application of the
material presented in conference sessions. The program culminates with participants giving a
short “dry run” presentation on their institution.
